Abstract

Purpose: To report on Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease that occurred after stapedotomy. Methods: Case report. Results: A 46-year-old woman developed bilateral choroiditis, papillitis, and serous retinal detachment 10 days after an uneventful surgical stapedotomy. The diagnosis was confirmed on the basis of the clinical features, fundus fluorescein angiography and optical coherence tomography findings, and a clinical course with subsequent involvement of the anterior segment, uveitis relapses with serous retinal detachment, and negative laboratory work-up for uveitis. Conclusions: Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease may appear after an uneventful surgical intervention of stapedotomy, suggesting that surgical trauma in the inner ear, a melanocyte-containing organ, may induce an inflammatory response within the eye.
